GAME 4

Teichmann - Vidmar

St Petersburg 1909


Ruy Lopez

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6 4.O-O d6 5.d4 Bd7 6.Nc3 Be7 7.Re1 exd4 8.Nxd4 O-O 9.Nde2

9.Bg5 looks the natural move.

9...Re8 10.Ng3 Bf8 11.b3 g6 12.Bb2 Bg7 13.Nd5 a6 14.Bxc6


White:Teichmann;Black:Vidmar

To 14.Bf1 Black would have replied 14...Ne5 and if 15.f4? he would have played 15...Nxd5 followed by 16...Nf3+ or 16...Nf4 according to circumstances, with a good game.

14...Bxc6 15.Nxf6 Bxf6 16.Bxf6 Qxf6 17.Qd3 Re6 18.f3 Rae8 19.c4 Qe7

19...Qe7 20.Red1  After that it appears for both players an almost hopeless undertaking, to drive the opponent from his position.

1/2 - 1/2
